Neighborhoods and Pages in History

Aminah is devoted to documenting neighborhoods that still exist and also those that have disappeared. While she bases this work on particular, historic details related to each of these actual places, the theme that emerges is global: the importance of family and community wherever and whenever they occur in the world. In 1981, Aminah began Pages in History, an extensive collection of sculptures, works on paper, and cloth paintings that record figures and events, both celebrated and obscure, from African-American history.
